conversation that's likely to be happening in the future. >> kristen dahlgren, thank you so much. the obama administration says healthcare.gov is in stable condition working more than 90% of the time. does that mean a clean bill of health for obama care. deputy senior adviser from the white house joins me from the north lawn. david, thank you very much. you set a fairly low bar, this vague working for majority that want to sign on and 50,000 could be served at one time, 800,000 in a day. is that good enough? what's the next step? >> so andrea, as you know, this is going to be a process of continuous improvement. compared to where we were in early october as jeff said yesterday it is night and day to the point we can handle a certain number of concurrent users. we're monitoring to make sure the system is stable, the response times are good, the error rates are continuously going down. we've set up a queueing system for those instances where there's overwhelming volume on the system to better manage the flow. we've set up anonymous shopping right on the home page of healthcare.gov so people c

president obama and john kerry has been saying. joining me now is david cohen, in charge of the iran sanctions. thank you very much. i know this has been a long process, and congratulations are no o in order because many people say it was the sanctions you helped create that got iran to the bargaining table. the question from netanyahu and other critics on the hill is why take your foot off the accelerator now? why not, in fact, increase the sanctions to make sure that iran complies? >> thank you, andrea. good to be here. we are going to continue to enforce our sanctions, enforce our sanctions very vigorously. in this first-step deal, there is a very modest relief package that, you know, frankly the price for getting the iranians to halt their nuclear program, roll it back in significant respects, and agree to really intrusive inspections over this six-month period is very limited. it's very targeted. and it's entirely reversible. so we have allowed the iranians to have a little bit of additional commercial activity, a little bit of money, but the vast bulk of our sanctions, the sanc

obama care but given the divisions on this court, this is going to be a very high-profile decision as well. thanks so much, pete williams, from the newsroom. >>> national security adviser susan rice is now on her way back from afghanistan after being stiffed by hamid karzai on what the u.s. thought was a final deal for post-war american traps to remain as military advisers. joining me now from afghanistan is nbc's chief foreign correspondent richard engel. richard, rice thought she was nailing down a deal that had been negotiated by john kerry and, instead, we had either karzai being karzai or karzai trying to play to the post-war taliban or other aspects of local politics. what is your assessment? >> reporter: well, i'm not sure exactly what karzai is trying to get out of this deal, and a lot of people are speculating and there's a great deal of frustration. most afghan analysts that we've spoken to believe that this has to do with local politics and that this has to do with karzai securing a future political position for himself. in april karzai is supposed to step down. he can't ru

report by "associated press" which first broke this story, obama administration has been in secret back channel talks for many months. at least five high-level meetings have taken place since march paving the way forth agreement signed in geneva. joining me deputy security adviser. thank you for being with us today. tell me about back channel talks. they were done without most of our allies knowing, certainly without israel knowing and saudis. what was the reason for these secret negotiations? >> andrea, we've said all along that we would welcome opportunities to have direct contact with iran. over the years whether it's at the united nations through ambassador and other conversations. we said we prepared to have bilateral discussions. any contacts we had did not turn into anything that amounted to negotiations or discussions in substance until the last couple of months. we made it very clear to our partners in europe and the p5 plus 1 as well as israel that if at any point any contacts we had with iran actually turned into substantive discussions and/or negotiations they would be
